High-Reliability Design using DFSS

Designing in and proving robustness in mission- or flight-critical systems is a challenging, but essential, mandate when lives are on the line. Design for Six Sigma [DFSS] is a methodology often applied in military/aerospace fields; unfortunately, it requires time-consuming experiments and precise data collection on numerous prototypes to achieve the objective. Using model-driven development practices, where parameters on virtual prototypes can be easily modified, coupled with a statistical software package for systematic experiment generation, makes Six Sigma design for every project achievable.

Watch how the Mentor Graphics SystemVision virtual environment, coupled with Mintab(r) Statistical Software, work together to bring about robust design in a brief, 5-minute technology overview.
